Manchester City: Fans react to reports of owners’ possible investment in Russian club - Manchester City

Plenty of Manchester City fans reacted gleefully to reports of their owners’ possible investment in an unnamed Russian club.

According to si.com, Russian media have reported that the City Football Group (CFG) has held talks with a club from the country with a view to further increasing the group’s portfolio of football clubs worldwide. The news was later shared by @City_Xtra on Twitter.

As reported by Manchester Evening News earlier this week, CFG completed the purchase of Belgian club Lommel, bringing to nine the number of clubs now involved in the group’s stable alongside Melbourne City, Girona, New York City and a few more.

Reports from Russian media [via si.com] claimed that CFG are mainly considering “major league clubs” in Russia, hinting that their proposed investment could be in a Russian Premier League outfit, although no distinct clues have emerged as to which club the owners are targeting.
